Wed 3 May 2017, 18:00 – 20:00 BST
Please join us for this book launch for Jewish Families in Europe 1939 - Present: History, Representation, and Memory in which the author, IAS Honorary Research Fellow in the UCL Centre for Collective Violence, Holocaust and Genocide Studies, Dr Joanna Beata Michlic will be in conversation with Professor Nicholas Stargardt(Magdalen College, University of Oxford). Dr Michlic wrote this book to invite scholars from a variety of fields to engage in conversations about child survivors’ post-war memories and the coping mechanisms of Jewish families and youth during the Holocaust, the possibilities, limitations and dynamics of the reconstruction of the post-Holocaust Jewish family, and the impossibility of the recovery of childhood in the aftermath of the genocide. The book demonstrates the importance of children and youth’s voices in the reconstruction of the social history of the Holocaust. The underpinning idea for this book is to increase attention to the personal stories of the individual children themselves.
